Bethenny Frankel may suck at relationships, but she sure knows how to run a successful business. Her Skinnygirl brand encompasses cocktails, yoga DVDs, nutritional bars, microwave popcorn, hummus, bestselling books, and more...the list seems endless. This self-made businesswoman and doting mom has found herself front and center these days by returning to the platform that made her a household name, the Real Housewives of New York. Many of her devoted fans have missed checking in with the candid forty-something beauty since the demise of her daily talk show. It comes as no surprise that the opportunity "to tell it like it is" lured her back to reality television where she rightfully belongs.
Recently, Momtrends had a chance to catch up with Bethenny to talk about her new release and all things Skinnygirl. In order to balance her busy life, the queen of gab gives her undivided attention to whatever task is at hand. Whether she is making business decisions or relishing time with her daughter Bryn, Bethenny is all about being in the moment. And to be at her best, she makes it a priority to stay organized, delegate responsibilities, and get enough sleep. So it comes as no surprise that her latest endeavor, I Suck at Relationships So You Don't Have To, is a complete toolbox of sorts of what not to do to screw up your love life. Who better than Bethenny to dole out dating advice in a commonsensical approach that we all can relate to.
Bethenny shares her ten rules for dating with plenty of personal anecdotes and helpful suggestions to think about. From Understand the Man to Getting it On, she 's got you covered. And to get a man's perspective, she has her favorite therapist and renowned psychologist, Dr. Xavier Amador, chiming in with his own take on the situation. As for dating advice, Bethenny is not one to dabble in online dating, but she sure isn't opposed to it or even blind dates for that matter for those in search of true love. The key is to keep the conversation light, fun, and confident. According to Bethenny, spilling your dating drama from past relationships is not the best opener for a rendezvous. Keep it simple! And, don't introduce your new man to the kids until you know for certain that you both are totally committed to the relationship.
